Canary in a Coal Mine

I saw my first bumblebee yesterday afternoon.  I have yet to see my first honeybee this year.

My wife is worried, as our little vegetable garden will need them to pollinate the plants.

If you ever read Douglas Adams So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish (and I highly recommend reading it, but only after you’ve read the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy) you’ll know that it was the dolphins who left Earth first, before the end came.

Maybe the bees beat them to it.
